Pizza Night with the Kids!

I’m making pizza with my niece and nephew tonight!

Pizza Night With The Kids - Ingredients

We’re actually using thin-crust pizza dough (still-in-the-testing-phase) tonight,
because the kids like to hold their pizza slices, but we’ll still use my deep dish pans just to make it a little easier to get the pizzas in and out of the oven.

Here’s a few tips to make Pizza Night with the Kids a little easier:

Make your pizza dough ahead of time.
There are tons of basic pizza dough recipes on the “inter-webs”!

Portion out ingredients like cheese and pepperoni into individual “kits” using zip-top bags or containers. Also, you can put the kids’ names on the containers so they don’t battle over ingredients.
This also keeps the kids from contaminating your giant bag of pizza cheese that you got from the discount club. :-)

Make your sauce ahead of time or use any prepared pizza sauce that you like
and portion that out into containers as well, giving each kid a small measuring cup to use for spooning and spreading the sauce.

Let them be the Pizza Artists.
The kids will have plenty of fun stretching out the dough and putting on their favorite toppings! Make your own pizza along with them and be ready to help if they need it, but let the kids be the Pizza Artists.

Be prepared (or offer) to help.
i.e. –
the kids may want help putting the sauce on their pizzas so they can get on with the “important work” of adding cheese and other toppings to their pizza masterpieces. :-)

Be the Official Baker for your Pizza Artists!
After they give you permission to bake their work of culinary genius,
as the Official Baker it is your job to put the pizzas into the hot oven.
When the pizzas are done, take them out and let your Pizza Artists eat their creations!
